Program Upgrades

Program upgrades are not subject to a processing fee. If you register in, for example, Program 1, then later decide to upgrade to a higher program, you are not charged an upgrade processing fee. Students will only be required to pay the difference in tuition between the program they are upgrading to and the program they have previously completed.

If there is a change in tuition fee from the time you originally took the Foundation TESOL Course and what is now being offered due to an addition of a specialization component, you may upgrade to complete your Advanced TESOL Certificate by purchasing a specialization course that was unavailable when you originally registered.

Transfers

Any first transfer (date and/or study method) is done at no charge.

Any supplementary transfer (date and/or study method) will require a $50 transfer processing fee.

If the course tuition fee increases between the time you register and the time you choose to attend the course in-class, providing this time is longer than 6 months, you will be required to pay the current tuition fee in full before attending the course. If an online student would like to transfer to an in-class program, they must pay the difference between what was paid for the online program and the in-class tuition. For example, if $895 is paid for an online course, to transfer to the in-class Foundation course would be a difference of $200. The student will receive the Foundation manual upon payment of the tuition difference. If a student originally registered as a correspondence student, the policy remains the same. If a student paid $1040 for the Advanced TESOL Certificate in 2004, for example, which included shipping, the difference today to sit in on the in-class Foundation course would be $95 (The $50 shipping fee is not included towards tuition payment). This is because a change in tuition fee is a direct reflection of a significant change in course material. If the price changes within the 6 months after you have registered, you will only be required to pay the total tuition fee due at the time of registration.

If you are a past in-class "Foundation TESOL Course" graduate and, in the future, wish to sit in on all or part of another in-class course, and there has been a change in tuition as mentioned above, then the difference is required to be paid as well as a $200 additional sit-in fee. You have the option to attend this course anywhere we offer it.

Absenteeism

If a student misses part of the in class Foundation course due to an emergency or an unforeseen situation beyond their control, the following procedure must be followed:

If a student misses more than thirty (30) minutes but under five (5) hours of class:

The student must fill out a Student Absence form to be submitted to the instructor with the reason for absence. The student will be required to complete assignment(s) to make up the time missed in order to receive certification.

If a student misses more than five (5) hours of class:

Follow the above procedure and the student will be required to contact the head office to schedule a make-up class in the next course for which they will be available. If the student does not schedule a make-up date within 3 months of their original course, they will automatically be transferred to correspondence and be made aware of correspondence program requirements and deadlines. Exceptions will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

If the student returns to class after their absence: They are to fill out and submit to the instructor a Student Absence form, then contact head office to schedule a make-up class (or classes) in the next course for which they will be available, within 3 months of their original course. Any student who fails to contact head office within the allotted time will be transferred to correspondence.

If the student does not return to class: The student must contact head office as soon as possible (within a week of their absence) to fill out a Student Absence form. The student must schedule a make-up class (or classes) in the next course for which they will be available, within 3 months of their original course. Any student who fails to contact head office within the allotted time will be transferred to correspondence.

Extensions

Please see Program Deadlines

Cancellations and Refunds

Online: Since students have instant access and become a member of our website after registration, all cancellations are non-refundable.

Correspondence: Since students applying for correspondence courses have the same access to the website as our online students, all cancellations are non refundable. Text books are non refundable as well.

Deposits: All $300 deposits made to save a seat for an in-class course are non-refundable. The $300 will go towards the total tuition costs and if the student decides that they are unable to take the in-class course they placed the deposit for, the deposit will be saved and go towards future tuition costs.

In-Class Courses: If a student registers and makes a full tuition payment and decides to cancel before the program begins, a processing fee will be administered. If the student notifies head office 10 days or more prior to first day of the course, they will be refunded the remaining tuition after the 10% processing fee has been obtained. If the student cancels less than 10 days prior to the first day of classes, the student will be refunded the remaining tuition after the 30% processing fee has been obtained. If a student has started the course and decides not to complete it, there is no refund.

Downgrading to a lower program

If a student does wish to downgrade to a lower program, they are only eligible for a refund if it is within 10 days of registering for the program (for the price difference between programs).

No refunds are available for any online courses that have been sent due to the nature of electronic data. Course descriptions and summaries are available on the website or a TESOL Advisor can be contacted for further information prior to choosing a course.

No refunds are available for students registered for single specialization courses. Only those registered for TESOL programs are eligible for a refund.

You know the value of a good quality education, but it can also be expensive. We at Global TESOL College make every effort to ensure that our tuition fees remain as low as possible for our students, while still delivering the highest quality TESOL instruction available in the marketplace today.

We also offer all students a " Lowest Tuition Fee Guarantee ".

Lowest Tuition Fee Guarantee:
If you are able to find a TESOL program elsewhere
of equivalent content, length, and quality, charging
a lower tuition fee, we will match that price -
guaranteed.

Q: How is Global TESOL College able to offer such an incredible guarantee?


A : Our educational-focused training institute offers programs and services worldwide but is based in Canada, where overhead costs are much less expensive when compared to running a business in America or Europe. We graduate an incredibly high volume of TESOL certified teachers annually, which grants us the flexibility to pass the savings on to all of our students worldwide. Also, 30% of our business is referred to us through word-of-mouth from extremely satisfied graduates. We have worked hard to keep as much as possible of your hard-earned money in your pocket, while training and certifying you with professional, world standard instruction.

**Some countries require a university degree as well as the TESOL certificate to be hired legally as a teacher. **
